Vicki Gunvalson, who took every opportunity during this season’s The Real Housewives of Orange County, to bash Slade Smiley about being a deadbeat dad, is a bigger hypocrite than Tamra Barney. Apparently her new beau owes thousands in child support to two different exes and it seems as though Vicki had a relationship with the new man before ever filing for a divorce from Donn.
Court documents show Brooks Ayers, Vicki’s boyfriend, owes about $40,000 in total to two different exes and was actually arrested in 2010 for non-payment of support in both Alabama and Mississippi. In August of 2010, two months before filing for divorce from Donn, Vicki wrote a letter on Ayers’ behalf to try to get him out of jail and in front of a judge quicker, seemingly throwing around her status as a reality TV star.
Vicki Gunvalson announced to the world during The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show, which was taped in May of 2011, that she has a new man in her life; however, it’s clear Brooks isn’t so “new.” Fans may remember Ayers appearing in footage from when Tamra and Vicki went to Cabo last year. Ayers was the “Donn look-alike” Vicki was hugging in the pool at the Cabo resort where she and Tamra stayed. Vicki also admitted during the second part of the Housewives reunion that she had lost her “passion” for Donn. Now it’s becoming more clear why she may have lost that passion.
Donn stated in his interview with Bravo that aired during the reunion show that he wasn’t sure if Tamra had any influence on Vicki filing divorce, that maybe Vicki saw Tamra with this “new man” and she wanted that as well. Donn is much smarter than Vicki ever gave him credit for.
It’s astoundingly hypocritical that Vicki had some sort of relationship with Ayers while trash talking Slade Smiley when it’s the same situation she bashed Slade for all season long. Gretchen and Slade are probably enjoying this karma.
